What Is Discussed During My P-Shot® Consultation?
During your consultation, Dr. Agullo will obtain a complete medical history and listen carefully to all of your concerns about your penis and the quality of your erections.
Because he offers both aesthetic and functional treatments, he can customize your treatment plan to meet your unique needs, and if the P-Shot® is right for you, he will recommend the procedure.
What Does Receiving the P-Shot® Involve?
The P-Shot® procedure involves obtaining some of the patient’s blood and separating the platelet-rich plasma, a component that promotes regeneration and healing. After local anesthesia is administered, the PRP is collected and injected into the penis.
Only well-trained providers certified by the makers of P-shot® are allowed to perform this procedure.
How Should I Prepare for My P-Shot®?
You will be asked to avoid taking blood-thinning medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, or any other NSAIDs for a week before and after the procedure, as they inhibit the regenerative process of PRP.
Also, be sure to drink plenty of water just before your appointment.
What Are Your Concerns?
What Can I Expect for My P-Shot® Recovery?
After your procedure, you will be instructed to use a vacuum erection device or VED twice daily. This process is a crucial part of your treatment and will help you achieve your desired results.
Since PRP comes from your own blood, there are only mild potential side effects. These include bruising or minor bleeding, swelling, and (rarely) infection.
Because no general anesthesia is needed, you will be able to drive yourself home after the procedure.
When Will I Feel My P-Shot® Results?
You will be able to have sex four hours after your P-Shot® and should notice some improvement within a week.
However, this treatment steadily improves your sexual function over the next two months, when the final results are achieved.
At Agullo Plastic Surgery, tailored care begins with a full consultation to discuss the goals and options available.
What Does the P-Shot® Cost?
Our fee schedule represents the minimum cost of the procedure, in this case, $1,500, including the anesthetic. The exact price of each procedure depends on the desired outcome and severity of the patient’s condition. During your consultation, Dr. Agullo will provide you with an accurate P-Shot® cost estimate.
